Capitol Chat - This our first edition of our new weekly signature segment "Capitol Chat." Each week we'll take a look back at the stories and issues in the news from California's Capitol with bureau chief Marianne Russ. She'll bring sound bites to the table for discussion and analysis and let us know what's new and what's coming up.
Tom Murphy - Former Pittsburgh Mayor Tom Murphy is travelling the country with his suggestions on how to revitalize cities stuck in the 20th century. His 12-year term as Pittsburgh mayor included the construction of three major sports and entertainment venues, directing nearly $4 billion in investment in the city, and developing an expanded downtown convention that is the country's largest certified green building. We sat down with Murphy after his speech in Sacramento yesterday.
Climate Change vs. The Law - Global warming is having a profound impact on the Artic, but how are Politics and Law coming into play as countries deal with this change? We'll talk to UC Berkeley law professor David Caron, who is the current president of the American Society for International Law, and is lecturing at UC Davis on this topic today.
Sound Advice: Classical - Capital Public Radio's classical morning host Kent Teeters will have a CD of popular works played by the King's Violins, music by American composer Michael Torke, and a symphony created from Howard Shore's cinematic music for "The Lord of the Rings."
